Cristin, thanks for the name. Will keep them in mind next workout.

Marco, AFAIK chanting "Bob Olajos" is difficult in that kinda monotone Buddhist way. Never tried it myself. But my name is kinda funny, spawning nicknames like Blahblahblah, Bubbaliscious and Bob Outrageous.:rofl:

Must drop by that Zen centre and say thanks.

Bob,

Thanks for the reply about the name, that's funny.

Folks,

My friend Tina developed cancer last year which may have spread to her spine and brain. I would appreciate it if some folks could join me writing her name on their hands for a workout.

Thanks.

Thanks to everyone's help, we raised over $4,200 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Kudos and good karma to everyone who was able to contribute (and to all Crossfitters for that matter).

Please keep my wife's aunt, Christy Joyce, in your thoughts and prayers as she was just recently diagnosed with myeloma.

The Big Kahuna Tri I have been training for with Team In Training is this Sunday. I will push through and work hard on behalf of all cancer survivors and those currently battling cancer.

Thanks everyone for your support.

Travis

Sorry to pull this one up and make a request as I haven't posted a whole lot on here...

But my wife is going back for a follow up today with Dr....she hasn't been feeling well, and they found some lumps they need to check out. Doctor says not to worry, but her words didn't match the vibe I was getting from her...and there is a history of breast cancer in my wifes family.

I covet any prayers and good wishes you can send her way, and encouragement that this community provides in every thread.

Stina (Christina) if you want to write it on your hand.

We don't care how many times you've posted here, or how old this thread becomes.

Best of luck to Stina, and consider your request fulfilled.

What a story and a brave woman. I can't even contemplate enduring what she's been through--especially with the kids.

Let's all take a moment to be thankful for our health.

My dad starts chemotherapy tomorrow for lung cancer. His name is Bob. I'm going to TX is help him through it on Saturday.

Thanks. I'm glad I found this thread tonight.

My mom survived cancer - still kicking after 20+ years (non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.) She went to M.D. Anderson....

It is a rough battle. As they hooked up the chemo to her aortic catheter, my mom said, "TAKE THAT, YOU G#@ D@#N CANCER CELLS!!!" That was the attitude she maintained throughout the process. After she was released as a patient, her Dr. said, "You had a 2% chance for survival of over 2 years past diagnosis."

I'll give Bob a nod next workout!
